We're so very close to the college basketball season, and another indicator was the revealing of the 2014 USA TODAY Coaches Poll on Thursday morning. The Villanova Wildcats are the only members of the Big East Conference to be included, with the other nine members on the outside looking in for now. Will that be the case for most of the season? Time will tell.
